A Wonderous New PlaceI watched as Evalin explored the coral reef garden outside the castle. She seemed so excited and interested in every little aspect of the garden no matter how small or insignificant it seemed. I wonder if she was like this before she joined us or if her new found life had changed her views of the world. The only thing I knew for sure is I didn't want to see the smile disappear from her face. She looked happy unlike when she was in the castle. I wonder if simply having her freedom would finally bring back her smile for good.
Evalin's RemorseAs Evalin sat staring off into the distance the tears started flowing. She yearned to see the family she had left behind. Becoming a mermaid had been her dream, and she loved her new life. If only she could have at least told her family good bye one last time she could have been at peace with her new life. Instead, Evalin was destined to forever have that part of her life haunt her until she filled the whole it had left in her heart.
